* Sri Lankan President inquires about the well-being of abducted child
Sun, Aug 3, 2014, 10:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 03, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa inquired about the well-being of a four-year old child rescued form kidnappers when he met the child with his parents today at the Temple Trees.

President Rajapaksa and First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa met the child and his parents along with the Inspector General of Police N.K. Ilangakoon.

The four-year old Dinidu Yashen Ekanayake was abducted by four masked men earlier last week in the presence of his parents in Katugampola in Meegalewa, Galgamuwa.

Five police teams, including two from the CID, were deployed on the direction of IGP N. K. Illangakoon in search of the abducted child. He was rescued by the police on Friday evening when the abductors have reportedly left him by roadside.

Police have arrested four suspects in connection with the abduction.
